Today, Cisco announced that the Dr. Erfan & Bagedo General Hospital, one of the oldest private hospitals in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and a leading healthcare establishment, will be deploying a Cisco Unified Communications® network to enable a collaborative Connected Health community environment. The solution has been designed to help the hospital to increase caregiver teamwork and productivity and will also provide better patient experiences by delivering increasingly sophisticated treatments more cost-effectively and efficiently.
“Cisco’s healthcare technology solutions facilitate secure access to network resources and applications from any location in order to promote security, improve patient care and response times and enhance operational efficiency, ” said Waleed Al Omari, director of sales, Commercial & Real Estate, Cisco, Saudi Arabia.
Cisco Connected Health technology assists with the streamlining of workflows and improves communication among clinicians. The application is designed to help to save hours in redundant hospital practices through wasted communications cycles, allowing caregivers the opportunity to spend more time with their patients. It also facilitates security, reliability and regulatory compliance and helps to reduce capital and operating expenses of hospital facilities.
Efran Hospital will also employ Cisco Secure Wireless to improve mobility and privacy compliance and provide more services to patients. The system will help to deliver a highly secure, reliable foundation, thereby allowing the hospital to confidently deploy mobile applications and services. With this solution, the institution can use the latest WLAN technologies to increase employee productivity, while meeting rigorous compliance standards for data privacy and security.
